(en) Russia, "Drop all charges against Joe Glenton!" - Action in Moscow

Date Sat, 16 Jan 2010 17:56:48 +0200

Today, 15 of January, over against the embassy of Great Britain there was a picket in support of lance corporal Joe Glenton, that was organised by anarchists involving members of "Autonomous action". ---- Activists showed their solidarity to Glenton's decision, unwraped the banner "It's better to be deserter, than to be killer" and passing out antiwar leaflets. ---- It's better to be deserter, than to be killer. Killers - those, who trespass on bounds of another country, bringing devastation and death, they should be called so. Terror - that's the name for actions of USA and their NATO's co-belligerents in Afghanistan. ---- Anarchists almoust all the time were under the gun of police, that registered disapproval with another banner, brought by members of picket: "army is slavery!", declared it antiauthority and inappropriate to the subject of picket.

During the action there were no serious conflicts. Nobody was arrested.

Joe Glenton, who has been a soldier for five years and went on his first
tour to Afghanistan in 2006, deserted and was arrested after his public
speech on anti-war demonstration in october 24th in London. Earlie on he
wrote to premier-minister Gordon Brown, he implored him to stop military
action in Afghanistan and bring troops home.
"I just couldn't see what we had given to the country. I felt ashamed" -
that 's the words of Joe Glenton about the war in Afghanistan.
The Stop the War Coalition has called Glenton's move a "very significant
moment" in the campaign against the Afghanistan conflict. He is the first
serving soldier to speak out against the government's policy.
